Budapest, the capital of Hungary is considered by many to be the "Paris of the East”. This beautiful city only formally came into being in 1872 with the amalgamation of three previously independent towns - Old Buda (Óbuda), Buda, and Pest. Budapest is now the administrative, commercial, and industrial center of Hungary.
